GEAR Software CD DVD Filter Driver 'GEARAspiWDM.sys' Multiple Denial of Service Vulnerabilities

GEAR Software CD DVD Filter driver is prone to multiple denial-of-service vulnerabilities because it fails to properly handle user-supplied input.

Successful exploits will allow local attackers to crash an affected computer, resulting in a denial-of-service condition. Due to the nature of these issues, code execution may be possible; however, it has not been confirmed.

The following products are affected:

GEAR CD DVD Filter driver
GEAR ISO Burn 1.7.1
Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 8.5

NOTE (May 17, 2011): This BID was previously titled 'Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 'GEARAspiWDM.sys' Denial of Service Vulnerability' but has been rewritten to reflect that the underlying issue occurs in the GEAR driver.
